Black Protester Sucker-Punched In The Face at Trump Rally Fayetteville, NC

Video shows black protester sucker-punched in face at Trump rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Police were escorting the man out when an 78-year-old attendee hit him with an elbow. An unidentified Trump supporter sucker-punched protester Rakeem Jones at a rally in Fayetteville on Wednesday.

The incident occurred as Jones was being escorted out of the building by police. In video capturing the punch, Jones, surrounded by officers, was climbing stairs toward the exit. He turned to give the middle finger to the crowd, when a man sporting a black vest and a long ponytail sucker-punched him in the face.

Officers proceeded to put the victim—and not the assailant—in handcuffs.
